Why would anyone drink Corona beer?

Posted on 06/06/2003 9:17:54 AM PDT by its gilligan

Why would anyone drink Corona Beer? I mean Mexico is not exactly known for producing quality beer in the first place. Yet this is like the dregs of Mexican brews. Its the Old Milwaukee of Mexican Beers. A poor Mexcian farm worker would probably just as soon drink his own urine as drink this concoction. The fact that you need to put a piece of fruit in the bottle to get it down should tell you something. Yet people here pay $7 a six pack for this stuff.

Well, I think I know who drinks it. It's the freepers! You see, at the end of the month when the workmen's comp check comes in, the freeper wants to impress the other freepers in the trailer park. So instead of the usual case of Busch, he goes out and buys some "imported beer." He then walks around the trailer park in his best stained undershirt with his Corona in hand and the other freepers think, "WOW WHAT CLASS!"

This has got to be it. Nobody who posts at DU would drink this stuff.

And no one at FreeRepublic posts this kind of trash.  Go back to DU, Clymer, I think Auntie Pinko may have a new column.

IMO, Corona stinks. But then again you are talking to a person who grew up in Germany, where they make real beer.

The sad thing is, German Youth snap up Corona like it's going out of style. They don't appreciate the greatness of German beer.

What exactly do you think Corona is?

(Fixed that for you, by the way.)

How to Skin a Rat Properly

Midventral Incision -

1. Lay it on its rat back.
2. Pin its paw to the tray if neccesary, but it sounds gross to me
3. Most lab specimens have a small opening in the neck area, where colored latex was injected into the arteries. Lift the posterior edge of this opening, and using a blunt probe, gently separate the underside of the skin from the muslce below. While continuing to lift, use scissors to cut the freed skin along the ventral midline.
4. Continue the lift-separate-and-cut-method in a posterior direction.
5. Stop cutting just in front of the urogenital area.
6. Extend your cut forward to the point of the jaw as well.

*Be careful to cut only the loosened skin and not underlying muscle.

Lateral Incisions -

1. Make 4 lateral incisions.
2. Make the first one along the edge of the lower jaw to the cheek and then to the top of the skull, just behind the eye.
3. The Second and third cuts are down the inside of each leg to the paws; also make a circular incision around each leg at the wrists and ankles.
4. The last lateral cut is to be done from the front of the Urogenial area, around the rear margin of the hind legs, to the top of the base of the tail.

Removing the Skin -

1. Loosen all the skin on the ventral and lateral surfaces using a blunt probe.
2. Turn the rat over and remove the entire skin from the limbs and dorsal body. (It's easier to start at the rear and work your way forward, not that I would know)

Be aware of -

-brownish tissue that adheres to the skin. These are dermal muscles that allow the animal to move its skin
-the mammary glands may appear as a band of tissue running under the nipples; this tissue may be greatly expanded to pregnant and lactating individuals.
-saving the skin to wrap your specimen between lab periods.

I don't know if I should be insulted by the theory that I drink Corona or if I should be insulted that you were educated in the United States.

Either way its a sad day if that's the best the DU has to offer...

True. It's perfectly good as a solvent, or weed killer. Or maybe something to mix in with the hog slop.

And dont forget Pacifico.

Around here in NorCal, it gets over 100 degrees routinely.

Pacifico goes down smooth....

I actually don't like Mexican beer because it's too much like German beer (i.e., they lager their beers, rather than fermenting them as God intended, at 60-65º F).

The idiot who posted this is a true representative of DU....Ignorant or just plain stupid, either way that is no way to go through life.

I will give him credit in knowing Corona is considered the bottom of the barrel beer in Mexico. Unfortunately, what he fails to truly understand is that when I worked in Manhattan (the Land of Left Wing Liberals) they guzzled this beer with their limes-non stop. So much for this ignorant idiots insight on who drinks it. I guarantee this guy is into cosmopolitans.

You're right: Corona is swill. As a Texan and an American of German ancestry, I take beer seriously (but not too seriously; it's still only beer) and have prepared the following "equivalence guide" for our non-expert readers.

Corona = Budweiser
Corona Lite = Bud Lite
Tecate = Schlitz / PBR
Modelo = Miller
Chihuahua = Schaefer / Carling

(I don't drink Pacifica or Carta Blanca.)

Negro Modelo is a decent Mexican dark lager; if you gotta drink Mexican beer, it's a good choice. Tecate with lime is okay, too, but is thin and foamy, and thus really only suitable for drinking after mowing the yard, etc. Most Mexican beers are brewed for American tastes, anyway (i.e. they're thin and foamy); if you just want a cold one, Schlitz is good, cheap, and (despite the fact that it's "The Beer That Made Milwaukee Famous") is brewed in Texas -- in San Antonio, by the Joseph Pabst Brewing Company. Save money; support beer made in the USA; drink Schlitz!

(Now, if you want GOOD beer, have a Shiner instead. It's still brewed by the Spoetzl Company in Shiner, Texas.)

My preferred beers are: Schlitz (cheap), Shiner (company), and Warsteiner lager (special treat). I also like Huber (Bock), Old Style (I know, I know), Guinness, Chimay ales, and most ciders, plus many local/microbrews -- but we're discussing mass-market beer here.

Only Padre Island frat boys and lawyers drink Corona. Avoid it like the plague.

Dos Eques dark is decent Mexican beer. I'll drink Corona sometimes. As far as the cost? Don't care.

As far as trailers parks, etc? Hate to break this to you but Freepers can buy/sell anyone at DU.

Thanks for the ping.

However, with the lack of support that Mexico/Senior Fox gave President Bush before and during the Iraqi war, I will not buy any beer from Mexico. The same goes for any beer from Canada, Belgium or Germany.

Besides Corona is often priced over excellent West Coast Micro Brews. West Coast Micro Breweries are owned and operated by tax paying Americans, and their micro brews make a Coronal look like stale, you know what.
